left by superstorm sandy, they will sure have an impact on election day. it will be a long time before people on staten island will recover. that storm create ad commuting nightmare, triggering long lines at gas stations. many people needing gas not for cars but generators that can power their homes. many others are not sure if the polling places will be up and running tomorrow. >> it's really like on the back burner. i don't know what we're doing today. as far as voting my school is up the block. i don't quite know yet. >> you knew it was coming a week in advance. the same people who were planning for whatever they also should have been planning an alternative. jon: david lee miller is in brooklyn, new york, for us where frustration is growing a week after the storm hit. david lee? >> reporter: that's right, jon. it is a cool, crisp, sunny autumn day here in the red hope section of brooklyn. one week after the storm while most of the devastation is gone, water has receded, much of the damage has been repaired, there are still thousands and thousands of people who are suffering, people
-- following his hands on response to hurricane sandy. before the storm, 56% of registered voters in the garden state approved of the job he was doing after sandy, they were surveyed again giving the governor -- >> look at these numbers. >> 77%. >> willie, you're a new jersey guy. new jersey native. i'm sure you can't remember a governor having a 77% approval rating, a republican governor in a blue state having a 77%. 67% of democrats in new jersey give chris christie a positive rating. i just -- he's defying gravity politically. it's remarkable. >> by historical new jersey standards in these polls, that 56% number was outrageous to begin with. a republican governor in the state of new jersey gets 52%. yes, it's the storm, but it's also what we saw on the show, i think it was two weeks ago, him and randy weingarten sitting down. there are people who don't like his style, don't like the way he does things, but they recognize he's working with the other side, a thing we don't see much in washington to get things done for the people. yes, it's the storm, but also the body of what he's done -- >> m
the country. i want to ask you, you wrote an interesting column about hurricane sandy and president obama's reaction to it. i live in the area where people are displaced in terms of where they are supposed to go to vote. people are voting by e-mail. i filled out an e-mail ballot because i was going to be in the city all day. >> there are a lot of technical questions. people can break into a server and vot vote multiple times by e-mail. the president obama got back on the trail and told his people to vote for revenge. he raised a lot more questions people have. the halo he was able to put over his head with governor christie shattered. i think he's hurt himself by not bringing relief to people who are suffering. martha: a lot of people still suffering out there, bill. >> when the president went back to the campaign trail, he looked so much more presidential with governor christie. but i don't think he gets the credit people thought he might get four or five days ago. i don't think a huge number of voters would be influenced by that anyway. but a tiny number can make a difference. martha: g
that was hard hit by hurricane sandy and there were all sorts of questions, gwen, about whether enough people-- people who wanted to vote would be able to vote. we saw the terrible devastation there along the shoreline. but the results are in, at least as much as it takes for the associated press to make a call. >> ifill: i have read more amazing stories today about pregnant women who were on the way to the hospital who decided to vote. people who stood in the dark in lines in order to vote. in spite of what happened with that hurricane. >> woodruff: comparisons being made to hurricane katrina, not only new jersey and new york. we also want to say this brings the electoral college projected total at this point-- it's early in the evening-- to 79 electoral votes for president obama 82 electoral vote for governor romney. we know we need 270-- they need 270 in order to become president. >> ifill: of course we have to talk about new jersey because david and mark, chris christie, the governor of the new jersey, royaled the wate a littlebit this week by actually having kind things to say about pres
seconds. first let's go to, in for the headlines. >> hey, greta, thank you. a week after superstorm sandy slammed the east coast, folks are bracing for a nor'easter wednesday. it could come up the coast and pass within 50 or 100 miles of the already battered new jersey coastline. it's expected to bring 55 miles an hour winds and flooding in coastal areas where sandy already wiped out natural beach defenses and protective dunes. and plans are in place by folks hit hard by the storm to go and vote n new jersey they are delivering ballots to emergency shelters. voters than e-mail or fax in their votes. and buses will take people to voting stations. power will be restored in most polling locations and they will be open. now back to greta. >>> in just over 60 minutes from right now in the swing state of new hampshire the first election day voters will cast their votes for president. with time now running out, which can date will win the battleground states in joining us with our political panel in new york, stotterd and michael crawly and chief political correspondence byron. you mentioned the
headquarters, i'm ainsley earhardt. a week after super storm sandy slams the east coast, hard-hit areas are bracing for another big storm. forecasters say a nor'easter will move up the east coast, packing high winds and heavy rain. the storm could set back recovery efforts in the past few days in the new york area and along the jersey shore. there is a possibility of more flooding, but not as bad as it was during sandy. the threat of more power outages as well. plans are if place hit hard by the monster storm to be able to go and vote. in new jersey, countep officials delivering ballots to emergency shelters. voters can email or fax in their votes. in new york city, shuttle buses will take displaced voters on polling places. officials are optimistic that the power will be restored and most polling locations will be open. i'm ainsley earhardt. now back to "on the record" with greta. now in the swing state of new hampshire the first election day voters will cast their votes for president. with time now running out, which can date will win the battleground states in joining us with our pol
number that was interesting to me. hurricane sandy, fully 42% of those responding to this first round in the exit polling said it was important, it was a reason, one of the reasons for their vote. that's more than one might have thought hurricane sandy didn't effect 42% of the country. those people are going by and large for obama pretty big. the question then arises, okay, well how many people were for him anyway? we don't know. it's sort of interesting. what it tells us, we can't tell. exit polls can only tell you so much. it's interesting. >> megyn: we have been talking about how these exit polls are not necessarily to be trusted entirely. it would be helpful if we explain that a little bit. brit, you were on the air back in 2004 when we got information in and back then they were saying that john kerry was way ahead, he was way ahead. >> brit: he was winning virginia and all these places. people are, we had the meeting with our decision team which i can thought then and think now is the best in the business. they were looking over the exit poll data and our pollster then said the u
